I'm not super in to the election.
I've done my part in the Primaries and will definitely vote today. However, let's be real--Donald Trump is not going to be our president. Yes. We as a country seem to be afraid of women and Hillary's got some shade, but seriously, Trump?
The day is off to a good start--or at least an early one! My new wake-up time is 3:49 am. I decide to work out since I have energy and to find a sub for my 6:30 pm class (because by then, I won't).
After breakfast, Trevor stops by for his daily smoke. I'm kind of rushed but make time to shoot the breeze. Plus, he seems anxious.
Good reason. He tells me he is moving out and would like to be out by January 1. He knows he does not want to live with a baby and it's time for him to move in with his girlfriend. He hasn't slept at home in months.
Not ideal, but, I get it and support it. She's great. He's great. I'm happy to be the catalyst to make this happen.
Still, it does make me anxious. Trevor already has someone lined up for me to meet and I have a few names in my back pocket I can call.
After I vote, I head to work and have a good day. I am pumped I don't have to teach! I make it home by 6, pop dinner in the oven and take a lap around the block to distract myself while dinner is cooking.
I call my friend Amanda and while we are chatting, I get a strange string of texts and VM from S.
"Are you okay? Please let me know."
"I haven't heard from you. Did you make it back from Wisconsin? Are you okay? Please call me."
I let Amanda go and call him. He's pretty frantic that I haven't responded to a text he sent on Monday (I never got it). It's unexpected and somewhat sweet. We make plans for Thursday.
I settle in to bed early (with no idea what the morning will hold) and for the first time in a week, sleep through the night.
